Pigeon Forge city officials should be proud of the municipality’s new LeConte Center.
I have long been fascinated by the island country south of the U.S. called Cuba. You have probably heard me mention that I love Cuban food and have eaten at Cuban restaurants in Disney’s Pleasure Island and in Key West. Someday I would like to visit Cuba.
I was elated this morning (Oct. 1) upon reading the first page prominence you gave the story "Libraries to open on Wednesdays." At the same time I wanted to share how all the libraries in our system are more than just a place to pick up books. As the slogan on our website proclaims "Sevier County Public Library System...it's about more than books."

On behalf of Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff of The Comedy Barn Theater and Fee-Hedrick Entertainment for designating Safe Harbor CAC, along with the Cherish the Child Foundation to share the proceeds of their First Annual Kickin’ Chicken 5K Run/Fun Walk held in Pigeon Forge on August 31.
